Another Matrix 4 Score: Iron Fist's Jessica Henwick Joins Sequel

It's been an insane week with news from the upcoming Matrix 4. There have been numerous casting announcements made that have literally blown us out of the water. Now, the project has added another lead actor to the fourth film in the franchise. Jessica Henwick of the Netflix Iron Fist series has all but signed on the dotted line for an undisclosed lead role in the Wachowski production. According to Deadline, she tested "quite strongly" for the part and is basically a lock for the movie. 

Apparently, Lana Wachowski is looking for a female lead to play a role similar to Neo in the first trilogy. She played the katana wielding Colleen Wing on Iron Fist for two seasons, one season of The Defenders, and even had a role as Nymeria Sand on Game of Thrones

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss have both signed on for the fourth movie and Jada Pinkett Smith is also in final negotiations to reprise her Niobe. This is gearing up to be quite the sequel.
